Hi! My name is Laken, and I'm a bookworm. Several years ago, my BFF and I went to Iceland over Christmas break. My favorite part of the trip wasn't the snow, nor was it the wicked Yule Cat who eats people who don't wear new clothes (yeah, look him up!). Instead, I fell in love with Jolabokaflod. It's an Icelandic holiday tradition where people gift their loved ones with new books to read on Christmas Eve. How cute is that?
I don't really celebrate Christmas, BUT I have adopted Jolabokaflod each year. Here are ten reasons why you might love to celebrate it, too.
